An idea - how to protect?
I have an idea for a modification for an existing product. I think this idea would make the product more useful and more marketable. Several companies produce this kind of product.
Is there anyway to protect this idea? I would like to start contacting manufacturers. I don't want them to be able to use the idea without me. Is there anything I can do? I don't want to have to totally recreate the wheel. I would love to work with someone.
I know this is somewhat vague. I hope you understand.
